, where the united nations has published an alarming report about the rapidly aging global population. by 2050 there will be more elderly people than there are under 15 and the vast majority will be in poor countries, those least capable of dealing with the demographic time bomb. japan is one country that is already having to face up to the challenge. >> if the rest of the world wants to see what the future might look like, they need look no further than here in japan. their population is already aging more rapidly than anywhere else in the world. 30% of people here are already over the age of 60. driving from here in tokyo to the countryside, the men and women harvesting the rice are invariably gray-haired. the japanese population is not only aging rapidly, it is also shrinking at an alarming rate. the current population will shrink from 127 million to just 87 million in the next 60 years. the biggest challenge facing the japanese government now is how will they pay for the care of these elderly people with fewer and fewer young people to pay the taxes? some economists here are calli

great nation is a clear example of this bit of reality. >> in his speech before the united nations general assembly, mahmoud amidin jab, he railed against israel and the west and their interference with his country. the u.s. and israel have repeatedly warned iran not to build a nuclear bomb. iran insists that its nuclear energy is not weapons grade but for peaceful purposes like medical treatments. on thursday, israel's prime minister netanyahu had none of it. >> so at this late hour, there's only one way to peacefully present iran from getting atomic bombs and that's by placing a clear red line on iran's nuclear weapons program. red lines don't lead to war. red lines prevent war. >> the prime minister has urged the u.s. to set clear nuclear thresholds for iran. red lines, he said, meaning if iran crosses a red line, military action will be taken by israel. question, in the "wall street journal" this week, alan dershowitz called on obama to forget netanyahu's red line based on a qualifiable amount of enriched uranium and instead declare a black line. the u.s. will not tolerate iran
york tonight, and critics are blasting his priorities. the annual united nations general assembly is in new york this week, but instead of meeting with world leaders, the president made a campaign appearance on the talk show "the view." israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu had requested one-on-one time with president obama, but instead hillary clinton will handle the private meetings with foreign leaders. president obama is also taking flak for his interview which aired last night on "60 minutes" in which he was asked about the turmoil and violence in the wake of the arab spring. >> i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are going to bumps in the road. >> these are not bumps in the road, these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east. >> reporter: president obama will speak at the united nations tomorrow morning, but with just six weeks until the election, insiders say his speech will be aimed mostly at american voters. >>> the raiders beat the steelers in

addressed the united nations. the general assembly there. the president strongly condemning the anti-islamic video that some say caused the unrest in the middle east, but he also says it did not justify the attack on the united states embassy. >> i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitution protects the right to practice free speech. i accept that people are going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. and we must agree, there is no speech that justifies mindless violence. >> in the last couple of weeks, he pointed out those are probably not the result of a video and were coordinated. he also delivered in his remarks a stern warning to iran over its nuclear ambition. >> let me be clear. america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy and we believe there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. we respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power. but one of the purposes of the united nations is to see that we harness tha
majority in the united nations that he can look to for aid and comfort. i think it's clearly designed to support iran's position across the board on the nuclear weapons program, syria, you name it. jon: we talk about the sanctions and we often use the word crip blink, are they? >> they are causing economic pain there is no doubt about it. the drop in the cost of oil has caused more pain. the real thing is will it stop their nuclear program and there is no evidence the sanctions are having any effect on that. >> if a nation like north korea can create nuclear weapons and it has and it's been under sanctions for years how hard would it be for the iranian toss do the same. >> it's not, as long as we continue this game and they continue to be successful in their stalling tactics, and they are very good in doing that. they've done it for years and years and years. we can't keep saying sanctions and dephreupl massey against this fact -- the clock is ticking. if they play this game long enough they will have their program. russia and china are facilitating iran's effort. jon: what do they ge

obligations. now, ahmadinejad's will address the united nations and the world in a speech on wednesday. that happens to be the holiest day on the jewish calendar. prime minister netanyahu will take the podium the day after and he has been aggressive on the need to stop iran's nuclear ambition. he says iran will be 90% to a bomb in six months. a bomb he says will hurt america. >> all the things you see now in these mobs storming the american embassy is what you'll see in a regime with atomic bombs. you can't have people have atomic bombs. >> so, what's causing this escalation? two words. the united states. specifically the election battle between these two men. either mitt romney or barack obama will be the one to decide on the war or peace question. prime minister netanyahu seems to be betting on romney. romney has known him for 35 years. he visited him on the campaign trail in israel. and i even saw one of mitt romney's books on netanyahu's study shelf in jer use lem. he even appears in a pro romney ad in florida. >> the fact is, that every day that passes, iran gets closer and closer
that our 193 member at the united nations, there's only one member, iran, that is openly calling for the destruction of another member. israel. there's only one member openly denying the holocaust. there's only one member of the united nations that is constantly, habitually instigating violence all over the world, from latin america, through north africa all the way to central asia and certainly in the middle east. for all those reasons and many more, the world simply cannot and should not tolerate the very notion of iran becoming nuclear. >> do you ever feel conflicted when you look at iran, it has a jewish member of parliament, there's been a series on the holocaust, television series that aired in iran. there is a small jewish community there. do you ever feel conflicted at all in that sometimes their actions in that way, don't appear to be anti-jewish. >> i don't think the world has an issue with the iranian people. i think the world has an issue with the ongoing threat posed by the iranian leadership. i think what they're doing is irresponsible and reckless in the first plac
is a clear example of this bitter reality. >> he called for reform of the united nations and the create of a new world order. he currently chairs the non-align movement with 120 countries and territories not linked with a major power block. he said unfairness and discrimination by a few nations is creating an economic divide and feeling conflicts. he told reporters he is ready to negotiate an end to the standoff in the united states if it lifts the sanctions against iran. >> based on the fundamentals of respect, we are ready and willing to have a dilock based on resolving the problems. >> the united states and allies have imposed sanctions over the refusal to halt nuclear development program. he also said that the united states has unilaterally imposed sanctions on iran for the 33 years since they severed diplomatic ties. he suggested at another meeting in new york that the standard could be resolved through new york world trade center united states. analysts say japan's willingness to talk would be to avoid sanctions in the west to avoid a strike by israel. sudan and south sudan agreed
to help prevent all-out war with iran. let's go to richard roth, our senior united nations correspondent. first, let's talk about mahmoud abbas. last year he failed at that same podium to make the case that the palestinian status should be raised as a state, that they should have statehood. now he's going to go back and say we want a beefed-up status for palestinians shy of statehood. what would that accomplish? why is he doing that? >> well, for them, it's another symbolic improvement of their situation diplomatically. it is a step-down from the rousing reception he received last year when he announced that the palestinians want their own state and they made a push for it. the united states blocked them in the security council. the only organization here at the u.n. that can approve that. the u.s. has veto power. now they're back to palestinians. something called non-u.n. member status. it allows them to be on the same level as the vatican, allows them to vote in different u.n. organizations, potentially get closer in the international criminal court for bringing cases to israel. it's a
the united states and that a weak economy means weak national security. it's no surprise he tailored that message that this audience. suzanne, from a pure political standpoint, if mitt romney can't flip virginia back to the republican column -- as we know president obama won four years ago here. if he can't do that, it's going to be very tough. these are states that romney has to flip back to the republican column if he wants to be elected president. >> jim, one of the things i noticed, too, that's different here, virginia's unemployment rate is much lower than the national average. you're talking about a national average of over more than 8%, virginia hovering in the 5% range or so. is his message of creating more jobs. is that really going to resonate in virginia? >> reporter: that is why i think, suzanne, we heard him talking about defense jobs. as he was putting it here a few moments ago, if the sequestration cuts happen -- you hear it here in the local media. while the economy is doing quite well, better than the national average. we heard the governor of this state, bob mcdonne
to the united nations this could be his last chance to convince that the iranian regime is the greatest threat on the planet. jonathan hunted is there tonight. prime minister of israel said today that there is no doubt at all that the iranians are building a bomb. >> reporter: none whatsoever. in the israeli's prime minister's mind. the world is faced with a fight with what he called modern government and those that would turn us to medieval times. there is no doubt whatsoever that iran is support of global terrorism and then he put a simple and dramatic question to the assembled delegates. >> so i ask you, given this record of iranian aggression without nuclear weapons, just imagine iranian aggression with nuclear weapons. imagine the long-range missiles tipped with nuclear warheads armed with atomic bombs. who among you would feel safe in the middle east? who would be safe in europe? who would be safe in america? >> reporter: so in the eyes of the prime minister, this is not a complex issue at all. the world is faced with a very simple choice. >> shep: we talked about a red line over there.
policy. president obama is about to address the united nations focusing on the weigh of anti-american violence that he called a bump in the road. mitt romney argued it's no bump but a crisis that could have been managed better. nbc steve handelsman has the latest from washington. >> reporter: president obama headed to new york with critics asailing his priorities. he'll make another candidate appearance instead of meeting one on one with world leaders. no meetings scheduled with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who angered democrats by publicly demanding a tougher obama stance on iran. on "60 minutes," the president seemed to dismiss netanyahu has noise. >> any pressure that i feel is simply to do what's right for the american people. and i am going to block out any noise that's out there. >> reporter: the white house claimed what the president meant was -- >> his objective is to take every step possible to enhance his real security. >> reporter: mr. obama had downplayed anti-american rioting. >> i was pretty certain and continue to be pretty certain that there are g
hillary clinton stepped off that narrative herself. when she was at the united nations, also said that they knew that al-qaeda had been active in the arabian peninsula. it seems to me that the secretary of state is distancing herself from the white house was saying because if it comes out later in an investigation that the white house or ambassador rice was withholding information about what happened when they knew it there is going to be a problem for this administration. >> paul: just to be clear here. ambassador rice reports to hillary clinton. she is technically part of the state department operations. she made the most clear statements about the association with the video and refused to acknowledge whether or not it was a terrorist attack? >> we don't know who was calling the shots. we do know what they were saying breaks into two separate parts. what they've been saying now suggests they did know early on that al-qaeda was involved in that. i suspect that is probably one of the reasons ambassador stevens was getting active there. it was well known to people in libya that isl
